ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Retired jail Lieutenant Marie Hochreiter celebrated her 102nd birthday on Sunday.

Hochreiter celebrated with her children, grandchildren and Monroe County Sheriff's deputies.

She worked in the sheriff's office in the 1970s where she was the head of female detention. 

The deputies honored her for her time with the office and her birthday.

"Oh what a wonderful surprise," she said. "I think we have a good sheriff there now. And it was just nice seeing them all. They marched down the street for me and they were very sharp."

She started her career as a "Head Matron" at the old penitentiary in the 1960s.
